Please send Mason good thoughts tomorrow!
He's getting tubes put in his ears!!!! We are very, very, very, very happy about this! Big Brother got them at 18 months and life was so much better! After an average of an ear infection a month (sometimes more) since November we've been broaching the subject with our pediatrician, but they didn't want to discuss it until he turned 1. So we made our own appointment with the local Ear, Nose & Throat doctor, on July 15, and he scheduled us right away! Prior to our ENT appointment, we took a trip to QuickCare on Saturday, with a diagnosis of infections in both ears. After a 5 day antibiotic, there was still fluid, but no infection. Dr. did a quick hearing test and said Mason was mostly hearing things as if underwater.
We arrive at 7 a.m. and it should take about 30 minutes. Send us good thoughts!
